Mara Dyer once believed she could run from her past. She can’t.
She used to think her problems were all in her head. They aren’t.
She couldn’t imagine that after everything she’s been through, the boy she loves would still be keeping secrets. She’s wrong.
In this gripping sequel to The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer, the truth evolves and choices prove deadly. What will become of Mara Dyer next?
I am speechless. A good speechless I think. I have so many questions. Huh? What? Why? How? Where? When? Who? I don’t think I can wrap my head around everything that happened right this very moment, because so many things happened and I need time to figure out what exactly happened and how I feel about it.
“Everyone is a little crazy. The only difference between us and them is that they hide it better.”
The Evolution of Mara Dyer is even more twisted than the first book. I found myself tiptoeing around every incidence, because since we know Mara isn’t a reliable source of information nor are her thoughts unbiased, I didn’t know if any of it was real or not. It was so hard to trust Mara and her actions. I also became to doubt Noah and his sanity. Oh, and those help me help me help me writings were creepy. So was practically everything else in this book. I know, I’m a baby when it comes to this, because I’m afraid of everything, but it was freaky: the birds, the cats, that doll – yuck.
Okay, so you know that surprise which was at the very end on that video? I had a feeling that one was bad news, but I didn't know how it all fits into this enormous puzzle. I’m glad that some of my questions were answered, but when they did, the more questions I had. This book seemed to have a Pretty Little Liars syndrome. Oh, by the way, if I may ask, who else was freaked out by Phoebe? She was a nutcase. As for predictability, I am used to having theories, but I didn’t have that many with this book and it was surprisingly awesome to be clueless.
I didn’t necessarily love this book, but I really, really enjoyed it and it was a nice distraction from my uncooperative PC which was basically driving me nuts for two days and still does. I want my questions answered and that mind-fuckery solved. Why is the third book so far away? I need it bad. This wait is going to be painful. All I can say based on that ending is: “you get ‘em, Tiger!”
